    Crystal structure of the full Swi2/Snf2 remodeler Mot1 in the resting state

    Agata Butryn et al.
    The structure of the entire Mot1 Swi2/Snf2 protein uncovers an unexpected auto-inhibited resting state activated by substrate binding, and suggests a DNA pulling mechanism of TBP displacement.

    ESCRT-III activation by parallel action of ESCRT-I/II and ESCRT-0/Bro1 during MVB biogenesis

    Shaogeng Tang et al.
    Building on previous work (Tang et al., 2015), novel ESCRT-III subunit Snf7 auto-activation mutants are used to reveal two parallel ubiquitin-dependent pathways during multivesicular endosome biogenesis.

    In vivo analysis reveals that ATP-hydrolysis couples remodeling to SWI/SNF release from chromatin

    Ben C Tilly et al.
    Visualization of BRM remodelers engaging their endogenous genomic targets revealed highly transient and dynamic interactions with chromatin, which are fueled by ATP-hydrolysis.

    Chromatin accessibility underlies synthetic lethality of SWI/SNF subunits in ARID1A-mutant cancers

    Timothy W R Kelso et al.
    ARID1A, a subunit of the SWI/SNF chromatin remodeling complex, and its homolog ARID1B function to maintain chromatin accessibility and active histone modifications at enhancers.

    Arid1b haploinsufficient mice reveal neuropsychiatric phenotypes and reversible causes of growth impairment

    Cemre Celen et al.
    Mirroring human patients with ARID1B mutations, Arid1b haploinsufficient mice exhibited numerous neuropsychiatric defects and revealed IGF1 deficiency related growth impairment that could be ameliorated with growth hormone supplementation.

    Electrostatic lateral interactions drive ESCRT-III heteropolymer assembly

    Sudeep Banjade et al.
    ESCRT-III heteropolymers utilize non-specific lateral electrostatic interactions to recognize one another, which may enable the polymers to slide along one another and adapt to different curvatures.

    Structural basis for recognition and remodeling of the TBP:DNA:NC2 complex by Mot1

    Agata Butryn et al.
    A structural analysis of the transcription regulator Mot1 in complex with promoter DNA and the proteins TBP and NC2 provides a first structural framework for how a Swi2/Snf2 type remodeler interacts with a histone fold protein:DNA complex.

    Stepwise nucleosome translocation by RSC remodeling complexes

    Bryan T Harada et al.
    Single molecule FRET reveals that the SWI/SNF-family remodeling enzyme RSC translocates nucleosomes along the DNA in steps of ~1-2 base pairs in size.

    Snf1/AMPK promotes the formation of Kog1/Raptor-bodies to increase the activation threshold of TORC1 in budding yeast

    James E Hughes Hallett et al.
    The key Target of Rapamycin Complex (TORC1) component Kog1 moves into bodies during glucose starvation to limit reactivation of the complex.
